Art Hub Film Club

Art Hub Copenhagen (AHC) invites you to enter the darkness of the cinema to experience the new season of Art Hub Film Club – presented and curated by the Berlin-based artist, Loretta Fahrenholz.

ART HUB FILM CLUB SPRING 2024

In spring 2024, the Art Hub Film Club, presented by artist Loretta Fahrenholz, will feature a selection of films that delve into the emergence of filmmaking during the 1970s and 1980s in Berlin, spurred by the women’s liberation movements. Female directors renegotiated the male dominated New German Cinema and experimented with highly subjective, wildly divers forms of filmic expression. All films are marked by their defiance of commercial norms, that seek to invent new languages of political filmmaking. By transferring these methods and narratives into contemporary culture Fahrenholz echo this tradition and creates an overlap of temporalities.

The films Two A.M. by Loretta Fahrenholz, Is This Fate by Helga Reidemeister and Ticket of No Return by Ulrike Ottinger represents the act of filmmaking for what it has been for many women, across the decades and around the globe, a terrain of feminist struggle, and a way of not only relating to society, but remaking it.

ABOUT LORETTA FAHRENHOLZ

Loretta Fahrenholz is a filmmaker and visual artist based in Berlin. Her ongoing investigations into contemporary media conditions improvise a decidedly post-cinematic approach to film, exploring social reality today. Often referencing mainstream genres such as sci fi, rom com and fantasy, the artist constructs hybrid docu-narratives whereby the screen begins to function as an interface between subjects and institutions, the real and the programmed.

Fahrenholz’s work has been shown internationally, including solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bergen, Berlin (2023); Kölnischer Kunstverein (2022); n.b.k. – Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2021); mumok – Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation, Vienna (2018); Fridericianum, Kassel (2016); Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2016) and Kunsthalle Zürich (2015). As well as film screenings at Ann Arbor Film Festival (2019, 2020, 2021); Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen (2014, 2020); Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (2019); Image Festival Toronto (2016); Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami (2015); and Anthology Film Archives, New York (2015).

ABOUT ART HUB FILM CLUB
